For many years the National Party promised ‘to get the trains running’ on the Casino–Murwillumbah train line, which helped them retain their North Coast seats. When the Premier and the National Party leader visited Brunswick Heads this week they refused to speak to locals (who also vote) about the train service.
In 2019 all they want to talk about is replacing the train line with a very expensive bike track. What a breathtaking backflip!
If the Nationals are going to treat voters with such contempt and put the community’s need for a train service last, it’s only fair we return the favour and put the National Party last on our ballots.
